George Afriyie, ex GFA Vice President 

Following earlier publications circulating on social media handles about the ex GFA vice president appointment by the Ghana Football Association, the former has debunked the claims making waves on social media.

While at it, George Afriyie in a statement, addressed the media to set the record straight by his admittance to serving on the Division One League Advisory Committee was borne out of the nomination by the Club Owners and Administrators on the Zone 3 platform and not from an invite from the Ghana Football Association as reported.

"Let me hasten to put on record that my place on the Divison One League Advisory Committee is not on the dint of an invitation from the GFA but rather a nomination by the Club Owners and Administrators on the Zone 3 platform who share a common position with me on the subject at hand (18 club division one league) for which I have strongly kicked against. Portion of the statement said.

Citing his reason to accept the position on the Advisory Committee, George Afriyie explained it was necessary to get involved in matters that affects the Division one League and for all Club Owners and Administrators to come together to review and amend the current statutes of the Division One League.

"I also feel compelled as a club owner to get involved in deciding on the matters that affect the nucleus of our clubs thus my decision to accept the nomination from the club owners and administrators from the zone 3. I believe that we need to come together to review and amend the current statutes as we agreed in principle at the last Congress of the Normalization Committee"

Addressing further, the owner of Okyeman Planners emphasised on the need for the GFA to embark on engaging and consulting all stakeholders of the game while stressing that, every premier league clubs are capable of being relegated to the division one league as any division one league is capable of playing in the premier league.

"I believe that, the future of our football ultimately lies in the choices and decisions we make today. Therefore my position is that there must be a broader engagement and consultation on the subject with the wider football legislature (Congress) because every premier league club is a potential division one league club, every divison one league club is a potential premier league club or a division two club".

Despite losing out on the GFA presidential election, George Afriyie reiterated his readiness to serve on any capacity to make Ghana football successful

" I will continue to serve in various capacities in seeking the greater good of Ghana football". He noted.
